The logic of signing with an organization that has been cancelling shows escapes me, but whatever, I’m not privy to the inner workings of the mind of an Olympian.
Which is what Kayla Harrison is! Yes, she’s even a gold medalist in judo in the recent Olympic games, so she’s a total badass for sure. And for some reason she’s signed with the World Series of Fighting! Because why not!
As per MMAJunkie:
Harrison, 26, confirmed to USA TODAY Sports that she has signed with World Series of Fighting (WSOF) to serve as a commentator and brand ambassador, and to eventually debut as a professional fighter, as well.
“I’ve been boxing and doing jiu-jitsu and all that, and the biggest thing for me, really, is that I miss competing,” Harrison said. “I miss fighting on the highest stages of the world, and the World Series of Fighting really gave me a great opportunity.”
According to WSOF CEO Carlos Silva, Harrison will make her on-air debut for the promotion on Dec. 31 for the company’s NBC-broadcast WSOF 34 event at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York.
